CHERRY HILL, N.J., Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- It's an exciting time to be a football fan in New Jersey, with legal sports betting now enabling fans to get in on the action. With the first full week of the professional football season now complete, this weekend was a true test for the newly launched sportsbooks. SugarHouse Online Sportsbook & Casino is proud to have led the competition with the most live in-game bet options available in the entire New Jersey online gaming market with more than 300 offers across the boards during their busiest time Sunday afternoon. There were at least 50 different betting options during any given game, allowing players to bet on things like how many touchdowns a quarterback will throw, the outcome of the next rush, or if a team can cover the spread. The start of the NFL season resulted in more than double the volume on the PlaySugarHouse.com site, making it the most popular sport for players in New Jersey to wager on.
